I have been saving buttons for almost 15 years. Not really sure why. You buy a blouse or sweater or pants and they come with a little bag of thread and a button.

Add to all the extra buttons from my clothes all the cute little pastel buttons that come with baby, toddler and then big kids clothes. What to do? Save them in a little cermaic pot for years and years. Then what? Well, let's do something with those buttons. Here's my start...
